    Michael White, the Michelin-starred chef behind acclaimed Italian restaurants such as Marea and Ai Fiori, has dropped 137 pounds over the past five years — but he’s still enjoying the pasta that made him famous. In 2010, the 6-foot-4-inch chef noticed his body was aching. He was uncomfortable, his feet hurt and he lacked energy. He stepped on the scale and was shocked by the number he saw: 374 — 100 pounds more than he weighed as a football player at Rock Valley College in Illinois.

    Last week, the Better Homes and Gardens email newsletter had some great pumpkin decorating ideas; I liked this one using mini-lights: You could also do this using 'Funkins', the carve-able artificial pumpkins, for a more permanent decoration: http://funkins.comIf you're somewhat artistically inclined, BHG also has a stencil for carving a pumpkin to represent your favorite Presidential candidate: http://www.bhg.com/halloween/presidential-pumpkin-stencils/#page=2(You do have to sign up, to get the stencil.) ________________________________________________ We've had a request to do a 'Low Carb' cooking thread, and I thought we'd start it early on this busy week.

    If you’ve banished pasta from your kitchen cupboard in the hope of squeezing into last year’s Speedos or bikini before your summer holidays, you’re making a terrible mistake. An Italian study, published in the journal “Nutrition and Diabetes” this month, reveals for the first time a link between how much pasta you eat and how slim you are likely to be. […] “Our findings show a negative association of pasta consumption with general and central obesity,” the authors wrote. In short: the more you eat pasta, the less you are likely to be overweight. …

    f you haven't made it to the gym this week then don't fret – it turns out exercise might not be as important as we all think. That's the stance being taken in a new study which has suggested it is in fact diet – and not exercise – that is the key to tackling obesity. Research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, has claimed poor diet now generates more disease than physical inactivity, alcohol and smoking combined. So should we all just kick back on the sofa with a snack – as long as we stick to...

    If two out of three adults are considered to be overweight in America, it is no surprise that losing weight tops New Year’s resolutions every year. Regardless of age, race, or gender, the battle of the bulge unites many of us. Heck, I even hired a personal trainer since I can’t get it together on my own. And while most of us will abandon our nutrition and exercise routines before January is over, there is a man whose dedication to health in 2015 could make all the difference in the 2016 elections. His name is Chris Christie, governor of New...
  • When you lose weight, where does the fat go? It turns into carbon dioxide.

    The most common misconception among doctors, dieticians and personal trainers is that the missing mass has been converted into energy or heat. "There is surprising ignorance and confusion about the metabolic process of weight loss," says Professor Andrew Brown, head of the UNSW School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences. "The correct answer is that most of the mass is breathed out as carbon dioxide. It goes into thin air," says the study's lead author, Ruben Meerman, a physicist and Australian TV science presenter. ------------------- The second most frequently asked question is whether weight loss can cause global warming.

    Green coffee bean extract, which Dr. Mehmet Oz promoted on his show as a “magic weight-loss cure,” had one scientific study backing up the extract’s purported effects. Now, that research has been retracted, the blog Retraction watch reported. Oz had to do some explaining on Capitol Hill in June, when senators asked him why he, as a surgeon and well-known doctor, promotes the use of weight-loss products that are scientifically unfounded. […] The green coffee bean manufacturer, Applied Food Sciences Inc., agreed to pay a $3.5 million settlement after the Federal Trade Commission charged the company with using the results...

    People who avoid carbohydrates and eat more fat, even saturated fat, lose more body fat and have fewer cardiovascular risks than people who follow the low-fat diet that health authorities have favored for decades, a major new study shows. The findings are unlikely to be the final salvo in what has been a long and often contentious debate about what foods are best to eat for weight loss and overall health. The notion that dietary fat is harmful, particularly saturated fat, arose decades ago from comparisons of disease rates among large national populations. But more recent clinical studies in which...

    You’re not imagining it: There really are differences between the way men and women diet, lose weight and respond to exercise. Some of the differences stem from biology; other differences are behavioral. But though many of these seem to give men a head start, they shouldn’t be taken to imply that guys have it easy. No matter who you are or where you’re starting, the road to your ideal weight is difficult at best, and confusing for most. But the information that researchers are unearthing about the differences in the way that men and women lose weight inspires hope that...

    First Lady Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign “Let’s Move” is encouraging kids to dance for the arrival of a dinosaur’s bones at the Smithsonian to achieve an active lifestyle. The Let’s Move blog explained on Wednesday: Yesterday, an exciting new addition to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History arrived: a 66.5 million year old Tyrannosaurus rex. In honor of the T. rex’s arrival, the Smithsonian is encouraging people to get up and dance. They’ve teamed up with Alaskan artist and musician Ray Troll and his band, The Ratfish Wranglers, to create “National Rex,” an original song celebrating the dinosaur’s arrival...

    How do people let themselves get to be 100 pounds overweight? I suppose for everyone the story is a little different; here’s mine. First, before delving into the years of weight gain, I realized recently I was in denial about my weight and just how heavy I was. At 270 pounds, it just wasn’t sinking in that I was a hundred pounds overweight. It was after seeing recent pictures of myself that I realized just how heavy I was. I’m fairly tall, at 5’9”. I’ve always carried my weight pretty well. I’m top heavy, so that accounts for some of...

    Eating five times a day can help keep weight down, a new study has suggested, as scientists reject the idea that three daily meals is the key to staying healthy. Researchers say a daily routine of breakfast, lunch, dinner along with two further snacks a day can help shed pounds. But breaking the routine can lead to weight gain—for instance, skipping breakfast is associated with putting on weight, according to the study published in the International Journal of Obesity. …
